Uber Frugal Month

January 10th, 2019 at 02:09 pm

I'm not yet participating in Uber Frugal Month. It's too hard to start it on January 1 when our college daughter's are home. We want to treat them and get them what they need since we won't see them until March.

We will start Saturday afternoon and try to go through mid February! My plan is to focus primarily on eating all the things, or making meals from the pantry. I literally only have three things in the freezer, so my stockpile is not like many people. But I have quite of few things in the pantry and refrigerator that I want to make use of before they go bad. I was very successful at this last year.

My husband is out of town for work next week. I plan to stay home primarily and do things that don't cost me money. I have sewing projects I can do with fabric on hand. I need to make a photo book for my Dad (promised to him in June). I also have a book to read that needs some of my attention.

I may (still undecided) shop for towels this month. I need to replace a set. I think this can be a good time of year to find towels on sale. Oh, and my sister and mother have birthdays at end of January, early February, so I'm pondering gifts that could be considered thoughtful and frugal. I did just redeem Swagbucks for a $25 Amazon gift card, so at least one of them may receive something I can buy from there! I could also redeem MyPoints and give my sister a gift card. I think even $10 or $15 to Starbucks might be welcome!

Good luck to all who are participating and are finding ways to keep costs low in January!

    When you finish your photo book, how about posting a photo. You have my interest. And your other sewing projects too!

    Rob, I probably won't post a picture of the photo book, only because I'd rather not share personal photos on the internet. I will use Shutterfly or some other service. The book is likely to be small 8X8 and contain pictures of me and my dad, as well as my dad and other family members. He doesn't seem to get into many photos. But I want him to know we love and appreciate him! It's actually a belated birthday and Father's Day gift. It's just been a whirlwind of activity since then.

    I can probably post photos of anything I make. I just need to remember! Smile

    CCF, I can understand not wanting to post personal photos on the Internet. I guess I thought you were making a cover for the book. Sorry for the misunderstanding. I do like to see what other people create.
